debate marks another high-stakes moment in the campaign. the romney-ryan team is hoping to hang on to its new momentum, while the obama-biden camp is trying to win it back. that left all of the pressure on the number two's today, as the hours counted down. the candidates were sounding upbeat, ahead of their face-off at centre college in danville, kentucky. vice president joe biden departed his home state of delaware today for the debate. >> i'm looking forward to it. >> woodruff: the republican vice presidential nominee, wisconsin congressman paul ryan, arrived yesterday. >> feel good about it. >> woodruff: but the public show of confidence belied the tension, as several new national polls show ryan's running mate, governor romney, with a slight lead, though within the margin of error. that made what happens on the stage tonight, even more critical. president obama called his vice president to wish him luck today, and voiced support for his man last night, in an interview on abc news. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. >> woodruff: and mitt romney played up ryan's chances, at a wednesd
they are trying to blame its romney-ryan particular for making this an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal which was, we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a agreement to make sure we secure our game. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a force as agreement because they failed to get one. that is what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. for what they've done for us. including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. and with respect to afghan tan, the 2014 deadline, we agreed with the 2014 transition am but what we also want to do is make sure we're not protect ing weakness abroad. and that's what is happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself. but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which
-- whited romney picked ryan and he was thought to be the favorite candidate because he was from iowa. >> it was someone that no one wanted to pick. the only time of the copy the romney organization want to pick paul ryan was mitt romney and he picked -- mitt romney pick paul ryan for a simple reason insisting reason he went to the olympics when a lot of his advisers told him he shouldn't and that is, he wanted to. he was the ceo of the campaign and he has is his own karl rove. that has caused them a lot of problems, business and personal. he is the product, not the ceo but that is how we set it up. they feel good about the ryan choice now and the main reason they gave republicans excitement which they desperately needed. if it caused them problems -- [inaudible] >> i would put it a little differently. romney had a really bad summer. he had a bad trip to europe and he came back, i think there was a real discomfort in terms of where the campaign was and where things were headed and he wanted to shake things up and he didn't feel like this was the time for a safe choice like a portman o
. but this one could be different. there is pressure on both men, congressman ryan to keep mitt romney's momentum going, and vice president biden to stop that momentum. the moderator tonight is martha raddatz, and for this debate the candidates will be seated at the table. >> good evening, and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012s sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news, and i am honored to moderate this debate between two moan who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues. and i'm going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that is what a vice president or president would have to do. we will have nine different segments. at the beginning of each segment, i will ask both candidates a question, and they will each have two minutes to answer. then i will encourage a discussion between the candidates with follow-up questions. by coin toss, it has been determined that vice president biden will be first to answer the opening questio
few years. and governor romney and congressman ryan, who have a very clear, five-point plan to create 12 million new jobs in this economy. bill: there it is from the other side. russ, thank you. rryback quick reactions this morning thanks for being here. >> thanks, bill. bill: 20 minutes before the hour. jamie what's next? jamie: there is even more reaction from last night's debate. we'll hear from the last person to face off with joe biden four years ago, governor sarah palin. what she thinks about what is talked about. bill: has a lot to stay. the president's team saying the political firestorm over libya is mitt romney. bret baier pushing back on that. did you her this on "special report"? >> what are you suggesting here. are you suggesting we're playing politics with this? bill: the rest of that exchange in a moment. you will hear the answer when we come back. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ]
precisely because romney was able to pull off something in his debate that ryan couldn't quite do because romney could -- romney had pandered to the right of the party. he had done it largely rhetorically even though he had not been a really hard right governor of massachusetts because he was constrained by democratic legislature and so he could just forget everything he said on the stump for a while, but paul ryan, his whole career has been being a creature of the world of conservative wing think tanks. he had this record. he crafted a social security privatization plan that was to the right of the plan proposed by george w bush and he couldn't just run away from it and say, no, no, i don't believe in that anymore. he ended up having to sort of defend these things. i think that got him into a lot more trouble than romney got into. >> yeah. i mean, i think that's right. the idea that, you know, sort of privatization or private accounts is an incredibly radical thing, you can argue against this. sweden where i lived for many years has private accounts. it doesn't have to be. it doesn't hav

any doubt on the part of viewers that the romney/ryan ticket will appoint justices -- two justice are likely to retire. they will appoint justices who will overturn roe v. wade. >> i was so pleased to hear him do that. we just did a special issue at "the nation" called the 1% court. the next president has the opportunity to appoint possibly four justices. four justices are over the age of 70. so i think it is a very critical appointment, and this is a court that could not only overturn roe v. wade but robert bourque was a -- it has also debt with citizens united and it's critical. >> jennifer: it is critical. after the first debate the gender gap which had been favoring president obama was now basically even. what does the president have to do in the next debate to get that back? >> he has to talk about women's issues across the spectrum. >> jennifer: i beam interested to see if citizens united comes up in the next one too. katrina vanden heuvel thank you for joining us inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> jennifer: and thank you for the battle in the natio
vision. governor romney, the opposite. the last thing we need now is another war. >> congressman ryan? >> we mourn the loss of these four americans who were murdered. when you take a look at what's happened in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place we knew there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for make -- making this an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's secure our g
. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're frying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for make thing an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to the veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude, including your some, bo. >> thank you. >> but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. and we agreed with the 2014 transition in afghanistan. but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself. but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we're watching is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy, which is making things more chaotic and us let safe. >> i want to talk to you right in the middle of the crisis, governor ro

. the debates should not be that important. it is their policies. romney and ryan's policies will destroy the middle class. host: what do you want to hear from vice president joe biden tonight to the congressman? caller: i want him to hold romney and ryan to their policies. that is what matters. that is what will destroy the middle class. they are changing their policies and fooling a lot of people. host: how did you see the first presidential debate and president obama's performance? caller: president obama admits that he did not perform well. what they have to do from now on is make the republican candidates hold to their policies and not let them get away with saying anything. host: people are saying the pressure is on vice president joe biden, that he needs to make up for president obama's performance. caller: i don't agree. he needs to put their policies against romney and ryan. host: let's hear from james in missouri, an independent. everybody wants your vote. what do you think? caller: vice-president biden need to bring a calculator to the debate so that paul ryan can show us his b
aide at romney saying they will cut taxes 20 percent across the board and paul ryan would not come up with details. >> we want to work with congress on how to achieve this. this means successful. >> no specifics? >> we saying lower tax rates 20 percent, start with the wealthy, work with congress. >> you guarantee this. >> absolutely, six studies have verified this math. report very to counter the attacks from the obama campaign, romney campaign pointing out the president's plan to raise taxes on the wealth of the americans who are race 710,000 jobs. >>trace: we talked about this libya thing, governor romney responding to the vice president's libya remarks. >>reporter: the romney campaign is going after the vice president about the comments on the benghazi consulate. particularly in light of what the state department officials testified to earlier in the week on the stump in richmond, virginia, governor romney says it raises a lot of troubling questions, new questions about the attack. >> when the vice president of the united states directly ton extra -- contradicts the sworn testimony
the only reason the murders are an issue is because romney and ryan are making it one. romney said the reason it is an issue is because an american consulate was attacked by terrorists and four americans are dead. trace? >>trace: thank you, john roberts, from virginia. our g.o.p. strategist and former texas political director for bob dole's campaign and a democratic consultant and former advisor to senators john kerry and ted kennedy. anthony, i don't know if you could hear this, if you look across the board here, it was either a draw or joe biden had a little bit of an edge in some of the polls. that is on content. on style the vice president got hammered for the smirks and the laughs and the smiles. >> this is important. he came across as a bully. in question. i stopped counting the interrupts at 40, i thought that was enough. he was aggressive. he could not defend the failed policy of the last four years. so he attacked. he interrupted. he chastiseed the moderator. it was very evident in body language and style he was like obama, they both thought they were above the debate and
for mitt romney and ryan to say. host: were you hired because of the convention and then laid off after word? caller: i was hired away before the convention. but the thing was that i got fired for unnecessary reasons. they were just during layoffs and layoffs at and things. i think obama said it best when he ran in 2008. we're going to go through bad times. you have to go out before you can get good. -- go bad before you can get good. he said this was going to take us some time, but we are going to get through it. it is going to get hard before it gets good. if we unite together and work together as a country. host: we will leave it there. but go to john in long beach. tell us your story appeared caller: i've never voted, but i have -- tell us your story. caller: i have never voted, but i have followed the politics. i grew up in south beach and in alaska. i always wondered why the politicians never talked about the old issues, the war on drugs that kind of thing. i just don't know where we are coming from these days. host: what is a real issue to you? the war on drugs is a real issue? c
performance or lack thereof. congressman ryan looking to boost the romney campaign's recent rise in the polls tonight. the debates are not usually game changers but analysts say this year could be an exception. carl cameron is fouling the presidential candidate. but, first, to ed henry on road with us here in danville. high stakes for the vice president after the president's performance, in doubt, right? >>reporter: that is right. because of the president's flop this puts more pressure tonight on vice president wide biden. the president, who is campaigning in miami, telephoned the vice president to wish him good luck. democrats are counting on him to shake up the momentum. that is going to an tough task tonight when you talk to political analysts. >> the vice president is going to come out and try to be defensive. the vice president, a strength of his, is his emotion and passion. that is both a positive and sometimes a weakness. you will see him come out and defend the president, not necessarily the debate performance from the other night but he will defend what the president has done. >>repo
people. we will lose our credibility on this. >> what would romney/ryan do? >> we agree with chemical weapons, but not about putting troops in. what we should have done earlier is work with those freedom fighters, those in syria. we should not have called assad a reformer. we should not have voided for russia to give us the green light at the u. n. they are still arming the man. they are flying flights over iraq to help assad. if we had the agreement he said about ira, we probably would have prevented that. >> let me ask you quickly what is your criteria for intervention. >> in syria? what is in the interests of the american people. >> no humanitarian. >> each situation will come up with its own set of circumstances. putting american troops on the ground, that has to be within the national security interests of the american people. embargoes and sanctions -- those are things that do not put american troops on the ground. if you are talking about putting troops on the ground, only in our interests. >> i want to return home for the last few questions. this debate is historic. we have tw
to want to really frame a negative message against romney and ryan, and pick up where the president didn't do that well last week, or didn't mention at all, thinking of issues like the auto ballot, social security, the ryan proposal on that. the medicare issue, the 47% comment that romney made and people were stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel
taken after the first presidential showdown. according to the "fox news poll" the romney ryan ticket got a boost jumping three points while the obama-biden ticket dropped three. the impact of the debate seems greater among independents with that voting bloc jumping five points in support of team romney while team obama dropped 7 points. president obama's opinion stayed the same after the debate while gove romney's rose four percentage points. that gives him a one point lead. still when you factor in the margin of error it is still too close to call. how did the president and governor romney did at the debate? both are weighing in. >> well, governor romney i had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it is not the first time i've had a bad night. >> well, obviously the president wasn't happy with the response to our debate last night. >> what's your message to joe biden about tomorrow night? >> well i, you know, i think joe just needs to be joe. jon: joining us now is karl rove, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contr
fought for our country. romney and ryan, first off, let's get something clear here once and for all, as far as the sequestered cuts go, it is not obama's thing, okay? it was congress and paul ryan's thing because they were too immature to act like grown-ups and make a deal, ok? obama had nothing to do with it. it was paul ryan and congress. guest: i do think that the one of the issues that people will be basing their vote on is the question of leadership at large and that is why you heard a lot about leadership from mitt romney and what kind of role obama is projecting and by extension what he is doing at home in guiding in shaping how we use natural resources. although the polls might not registered significance to a particular foreign policy issue, when it comes to the broader question of leadership, that is part of what people will be casting their vote on. there is an opportunity, as the mitt romney team has identified, to suggest criticism of president obama as a leader. host: president obama was at a fund-raiser in california last night. [video clip] >> governor romney has a d
the medicaid program in ohio, when they see the romney/ryan budget when it hits the ground, he's going to lose. he's just not going to be able to carry enough independent voters. as i said on top of the auto rescue, we have people that have actually felt the obama policies help them. right down the supply chain in the auto industry here, you can go to places like the logistics company, the trucking company, the seat manufacturer, all the way down the line have benefited and they know, i was out at the plant gate the other day, they know it was obama sticking his neck out in 2009 to make sure that gm didn't go bankrupt and the autos didn't go bankrupt. >> i will be curious -- >> romney was on the wrong side of that. >> curious to see how the polling does when there is a good -- right? we're too close to the debate, we didn't have the good post-debate polls in the state of ohio yet to really flush that out. >> any swing state poll after the debate, except in colorado, which still shows obama with a four-point be edge there? >> in ohio we were in the field before the debate and i was in cincinnat
collection. which does not sound interesting as it is, but mitt romney picked paul ryan and the expectation among supporters would -- was that this would be a chance for him to outline a campaign with a whole set of policy decisions that would set him apart from the president, but in the past few weeks we have seen the campaign dynamics not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to be the president. host: is mitt romney going to focus more on what the president is doing wrong, or more on his own plan? caller: based on the release extroverts -- exurbs of the speech, it looks like they're trying to follow up on obama. there is not a huge gap there and the question for the president was from a couple of months ago, clearly the mitt romney campaign knows that there is more time to make some headway there. there is always the risk that by focusing on this before the vice presidential debate, even as both sides think that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there wil
been a part of the romney-ryan campaign. >> so the pressure on both candidates after last week's debate, however, what many saw as president obama's lackluster performance. the vice president, joe biden, really feeling the heat now. at least that's how the folks at "snl" see it. >> is there anything more exciting than joe biden thinking it's up to him to get the lead back? it's tivo time. >> and this reminder, can you watch the vice presidential debate right here on cnn. joe biden and paul ryan go at it thursday. our coverage beginning at 7:00 eastern. here's what we're working on for this hour. >> more people have come down with a dangerous form of meningitis all because of contaminated steroid shots. it turns out the fda does not regulate the company that supplied the drug and many others like it. we'll explain why. >>> a congressional report warns two chinese telecommunications companies operating in the u.s. pose a threat to national security. >>> and adair devil sky diver is getting ready to break world records with a freefall from space. we'll have a live report on his wild missio

"fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> good sunday morning, everybody, not so much for the new york yankees. we'll tell you why in just a bit. not just a loss on the field, alisyn, a loss of historic proportions for them in terms of the leader, the the heart and soul of that have franchise for the last decade. >> alisyn: i can't wait to here that wow. >> clayton: and meanwhile, we've been following of course the investigation or the lack of investigation into the benghazi attack in libya, the terrorist attack and of course, now an investigation launched and announced on friday evening, and last night the mother of slain state department official sean smith on fox news channel speaking to judge janine pirro about this and the lack of i

versus ryan here. a week from tomorrow, obama versus romney. and then those two again, two weeks from today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a
reimbursement than really they should be, but though other part beyond that is that paul ryan included all of these cuts and really savings on the beneficiary side in his budget. mitt romney said he would of course support the ryan budget. now he is saying that is not my budget, that is his budget but he would sign it if it came to his desk. but the point is to criticize cuts that your running mate, the person you think is best qualified to step in for you, also endorsed along with the bulk of the republican conference, you know is a little bit disenagainous. >> bill: on the issue of tax cuts it is $4.8 trillion but he said it is not going to add to the deficit, because he will offset that loss in revenue by closing tax loopholes. he hasn't identified which loopholes he would close or which programs he would cut other than pbs. >> right. >> bill: big bird. here we go right. substantial savings? >> well of course not. as we know it's actually less than .01 of 1%. and it's funny how these debates shake out. i think if you look at the polls, mitt romney at least in the i
and turned the camera and said, who am i, why here? we ask that about paul ryan because we know who he is. the democrat bashing hook young got a republican, but he doesn't know where he is in terms of his relationship to governor romney. he will come under pressure to define that tonight. >> we have seen the polls move in as governor romney's favor. you have been at the swing states, what is your impression? >> i have been in florida and ohio. certainly everybody i spoke to was convinced that governor romney won and even obama supporters and are wondering if they're going to vote for him or move over. what is very clear is it really is going to be the economy that decides it. in the economy of monthly and quarterly data releases, this is the economy of day-to-day lives. the struggle to find jobs and pay bills. it was striking and that several people referring to both candidates said, i wish they could step into my shoes for a day to see it as i see it. there is a perception that they have not empathize. hashemi polls suggest that some voters say they are starting to see an uptick in the e
